To the Editors of the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 10 February 1825

To the Editors of the Australian. GENTLEMEN,           Returning in a pensive unsatisfied mood last Sabbath morning, my ear was suddenly arrested by the sound of sacred music, and on looking round, I found myself opposite the gate of the new   School-house, in Castlereagh-street, and beheld men and women           kneeling in the most devout manner, uncovered, on the stone     steps leading to the door. The Roman christians within, were by their chorus praising God with such exquisite harmony both     of voice and instrument, that my soul was thawed of the icy coldness with which it had been benumbed in the Protestant church, which I had just left : and all the little piety I possessed was instantly elicited, and I felt my mind expand in the most un- feigned good will and affection towards t...

THE JURY QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 10 February 1825

THE JURY QUESTION. On Monday morning last Counsel applied to   the Magistrates at the Quarter Sessions to direct the Clerk of the Peace to furnish a copy of the precept, which the Justices had directed to the chief     constable — commanding him to return jury-lists to the Sheriff. The chief constable, in obedience to that precept, should have issued forth a sub-precept to the petit-constables, of the several parishes, di- recting and requiring them to convene; and meet   together with the said head constable, within fourteen days next after the date of such precept, at some con- venient place in the parish, in order to return true lists, in writing, signed by them, of the names and places of abode of all persons within their respective constablewicks, qualified to serve on juries, with their titles and additions, between the ages of 21 and 70. The high constable had failed to take the step which the statutes of William and Ann thu...

EXPEDITION TO THE SOUTHWARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 10 February 1825

EXPEDITION TO THE SOUTHWARD. The following particulars of the expedition across the country to western port cannot fail to prove interesting to our Readers. We give them as nearly as possible in the words in which they have been     communnicated to us :—     On the 3d of October last we took our departure   from the district of Appin, accompanied by six   servants, having a supply of provisions for sixteen   weeks, and proceeded to Mr. Hume's station, at Lake George. On the 17th we continued our journey in a South West direction, and the following day passed over a fine grazing country, which we named   Macdougal Plains, called by the natives Yarr; and in the evening of the following day we arrived on the banks of the Morrumbidgee, which we crossed on the 22d, and continuing our route to the S. W. over an open forest country until the 24th. When finding it impracticable to ascend...

To the Editor of the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 17 February 1825

To the Editor of the Australian.     SIR,           I do not send you this letter expressly for publi- cation; for, to the public our mutual criticisms must   be dry and uninteresting. But, I cannot allow the subject to drop, as between ourselves, without accus- ing you of a want of candour; and of taking an ad-   vantage of the weapons an Editor possesses, which I consider unfair and ungenerous. In your former observations on my letter of the 27th ult, you translated "Timoros," by the help of   your Lexicon, "Vindex, Ultor, Adjutor, Auxiliator,     Defensor," &c. but now, finding that "Vindex" im-   plies a "Vindicator," as well as an "Avenger,"     and that all the other terms, except "Ultor," are ir-   reconcileable with your interpretation, you shift your ground; and...

CRIMINAL COURT. King v. Polack. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 17 February 1825

CRIMINAL COURT.   King v. Polack. MONDAY. — This was an information filed by the Attorney- General, at the instance of Mr. Josephson, against A. Polack, for wilful and corrupt perjury, in swearing that Mr. Josephson, during the time that he (Polack) lived with him, was in constant habit of removing his jewellery from the shew cases every night to his bed-room. The circumstances which led to this prosecu- tion having been stated.               Jacob Josephson, a jeweller, of Pitt-srteet, stated, that on the     27th December, two glass cases, containing a quantity of jewel- lery, was stolen from his shop; he went early in the morning to the Police Magistrate to report the same, and to have search war- rants against some suspected persons. The Magistrates told him, from what he had heard from Mr. Dunn, the chief constable, re- specting a conversation betwee...

PRESENTMENTS OF THE LATE GRAND JURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 17 February 1825

PRESENTMENTS OF THE LATE GRAND JURY. The Grand Jury Inquest of our Sovereign Lord the King, present to the Court of General Quarter Ses- sions of the Peace, assembled at Sydney, in and for   the Colony of New South Wales, the eighth day of February, in the year of Our Lord, 1825 — that agree- ably to the instructions of the Court, they visited His   Majesty's gaol for the county of Cumberland, and the town of Sydney; and present to the Court, that in point of size, airyness, and suitable accommodation, it is wholly inadequate to the increased population, and consequent increase of crime, in the said town and county; and looking to the number of prisoners now confined therein. It is also very insecure in the back part of the premises; but the Inquest will not trouble   the Court with a recapitulation of the details which were fully mentioned in the presentment of the late Grand Inquest; and which went so fully to establish the defects of the pri...

MISCELLANEOUS—ENGLISH. THE EFFECT OF A SPECIAL VERDICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 17 February 1825

MISCELLANEOUS— English. THE EFFECT OF A SPECIAL VERDICT. A prisoner of the name of James Thomas Boyce, was convicted, and received sentence of death, at the Old Bailey, in the June Sessions, and since liberated upon His Majesty's free pardon. The pardon was the necessary result of the singular verdict of the Jury who tried him.         Boyce was found, with another man who made his escape, attempting to break into a shop, proofs of which were apparent on the partition wall. A watchman in trying the door, before he left duty, found this open, and on going in, the door was shut so as to keep him there, and Boyce immediately attacked him with an iron crow, and struck him with great violence several times over the head. The watchman called out for   mercy, begging he would not kill him. Boyce then bid him sit down on the block at the farther end of the shed, threatening, if he offered to stir from it, he would do for him. Having thus got a fair start of the whole length of ...

In another column will be found a report of the extraordinary trial of the King v. Cooper, on an In- formation of intrusion into the piece. of ground called the Black Wattle Swamp. We cannot but look upon the attempt which was thus made to regain possession   of this land by the Crown, as most unjust and im- politic — unjust, because if it were even true, that a mistake had been made by the Assistant Surveyor in measuring this land to Mr. Cooper, still it was more fitting that the Government itself should suffer from the errors of its own officer, than that the consequences of that error should fall on an individual; — impolitic,   because the larger portion of the community hold their landed possessions precisely on the same tenure as Mr. Cooper, and a question therefore striking so directly at the root of the real property of the Colo- nists, should not, as it appears to us,—have been   mooted to accomplish so paltry an object, as the re- cov...

SUPREME COURT.   Civil side. KING v. COOPER. This was an action brought by the Attorney-Ge- neral at the suit of the King, and called an Informa- tion of Intrusion against Mr. Robert Cooper, for taking possession of a certain parcel of Crown land near Black Wattle Swamp, without legal authority. The Attorney and Solicitor-General appeared on behalf of the Crown. The Attorney-General stated the na- ture of the case and the pleadings to the Jury. Dr. Wardell then addressed the Jury on the part of Mr. Cooper. After making some observations on the im-   portance of the case, and the injustice of the proceed- ings, as also the effect of these on most of the titles to land in the Colony, which did not happen to be under seal, the learned Counsel detailed at length the circumstances of the case. Mr. Cooper, it ap- peared from his statement, on seceding from the part- nership with Mr. James Underwood, in the other dis- tillery, determined on erecting a distillery h...
